The form of the partial fraction decomposition of a rational function is given below.
What are the values of and ?
So can someone explain how to get the answer. I'm not sure how I got to the answer but I know and
I also found the indefinite integral, which equals
Answer & Explanation
Multiplying either sides by
Compare the constants and the coefficients of of the above identity to form three simultaneous equations with three unknowns A,B,C
Multiply by and let to obtain
Multiply both sides by , let , and use to obtain
Finally, evaluate at , and use :
